Ever wondered what Contemporary Dance actually is?
From Martha Graham to Beyoncé: experience a blast from the past to a taster of today with this wildly diverse dance style as your host, Jennifer Irons, guides you through a live ‘danceploration’ of where Contemporary Dance came from, where it is now and how we got here.
Commissioned by Dance Umbrella in 2018, DanceStory is a short dance-theatre piece that physically and verbally reveals the history of contemporary dance for a younger audience. The work includes historical information, physical demonstrations, visuals and moments of participation, as well as revealing what the world of dance looks like today.
